WE ASKED | What was 2020’s most used catch-phrase? Witness Facebookers provide the answers.

In a year that has presented more unexpected changes and challenges than we could ever have imagined, it’s no surprise that the catch phrases for this year were completely unique. When we all toasted in the New Year back in January, few of us had any inkling of what was coming our way as the Covid-19 pandemic hit and then took hold.  With this in mind, The Witness asked their Facebook readers what they thought the catch-phrase for 2020 is. Their responses covered a range of topics related to the pandemic, from phrases used by President Cyril Ramaphosa to those we all heard repeatedly on virtual meetings. While some of them are sobering, trust us as South Africans to stamp our unique sense of humour on many of them. We hope the witty ones will make you smile as much as we did when reading them. Here are some of their answers: Cherzellê Fiona Govender – “When people zol…” Darryn Wright Rodwell – #withimmediateeffect Mika Aheer – “Sorry, I was looking for the unmute button.”  #virtualmeetings Casey Van Der Merwe – Spray your hands Shazia Hoosen – “My fellow South Africans” Joanne Wirth – Pull it up!
